Restoring Your Railway Fund

The title of this post, is the same as that of this document on the Government web site.

A section gives the list of the first ten individual projects, that are being backed by the fund.

These are a few general thoughts.

Decarbonisation and Climate Change

The Government document does mention decarbonisation or climate-change.

But the Government is committed to be carbon-neutral by 2050, so in my analysis, I will take that into account.

Vivarail

These projects could use versions of Vivarail’s Class 230 trains.

  • Reinstatement Of Branch Lines On The Isle Of Wight
  • Reinstatement Of The Bury-Heywood-Rochdale Lines

They must be doing something right.

  14. the gov has just published its National Infrastructure Strategy https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/938049/NIS_final_web_single_page.pdf P41 of this lists the projects from round 2 receiving funding:

    “reopening Beeston Castle and Tarporley station
    in Cheshire, St. Anne’s Park station in Bristol, and
    Ferryhill station in County Durham; reinstating links
    between Bolton, Radcliffe, and Bury; the Stratford
    upon-Avon to Honeybourne/Worcester/Oxford line;
    new stations at Waverley in South Yorkshire and a
    station in the Langport/Somerton area of Somerset;
    improved services from Melton Mowbray and Falmouth;
    upgrading the South Fylde Line; the Maid Marian line
    between Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire; reinstating
    rail access to Cirencester; restoring services between
    Swanage and Wareham; the South Humber rail link; and
    a new link between Consett and Newcastle”.

    No mention of this as yet on the RYR website.

    There’s quite a lot to digest in this strategy. The intentions look good, but as usual the proof of the pudding …
